Bushra Ejaz is a contemporary woman poet, short fiction writer andliterary writer from Pakistan. She originally writes inUrdu andoccasionally in Punjabi in Shahmukhi script. She is being read,studied and translated widely in Punjab, India.
A strange sense accompanies the mind of the reader while reading herpoems. Her expression is simple, yet symbolically obscure. Thethematic concern in her poems range from the theme of love toseparation, from unity to disintegration, from seeking self-identityto eliminating existence and from the subtle reality to dreams andillusions of life. Her poems are a poignant expression of anautobiographical and a universal “female experience”. Since thesocio-cultural and historical back ground of both the countries, Indiaand Pakistan, is quite similar, her poems capture the similarexperience of women across borders.The collection of poems in this book were translated from Urdu intoPunjabi by Mohammad Idris and from Punjabi into English by IshmeetKaur.
